Soller and Fornalutx
The town of Soller with its 13,800 inhabitants is located in the northwest of the island, a few kilometers inland from the Port de Soller. It is the largest valley of the Serra de Tramuntana and the municipality comprises several villages. The best known of these are Puerto de Sóller and Biniaraix. The name Soller originates from the original name sulliar, meaning "gold" in Arabic, because of the golden coloured olive oil cultivated here. Thanks to the famous oranges from Soller, the valley is still to this day a "golden" place.
Palma de Mallorca is 24kms away and there is a railway that links Soller with Palma www.trendesoller.com/en/cms.php/Train_Itinerary . For accommodation, we can recommend the Grand Hotel Soller - www.granhotelsoller.com/en/ , Finca Can N'Ai

The small picturesque village of Fornalutx with its charming rustic stone houses and its typical narrow stepped streets dating back to the Middle Ages, has a population of 700 inhabitants and is located at the foot of the mountain of Puig Major, the highest peak in Mallorca at 1.447m. Located in the valley of Soller, Fornalutx is surrounded by terraces of ancient olive trees and orange groves. It is a wonder of architecture and landscaping and is one of the most peaceful places on the island, even though it is also one of the most visited in Mallorca.
